6. Resetting the Filter Light on a Samsung Refrigerator

On newer Samsung refrigerators, the filter indicator light turns orange after five months or when your filter reaches 90% capacity. The indicator light will then turn red after six months or once the filter has reached 100% capacity.

Depending on the model you have the light can be either green or blue.

Resetting the filter light on your Samsung fridge is usually straightforward. 

  1. First, find the multi-function button on your screen display that controls the filter indicator. The alternative function is usually written under the button label.
  2. This may be labelled as ‘Alarm’, ‘Water’ ‘Energy Saver’ ‘Fridge’, ‘Power Cool’ ‘Ice type’, ‘Child Lock’, ‘Moisture Control’ or a combination of these.
  3. Then press and hold the button(s) for 3 seconds until the light changes.
  4. That’s it! Enjoy your freshly filtered water.
